I tried on two different real PCs (no emulation) and in both cases the ubuntu screen appeared. Maybe use Ubuntu Feisty like Markus Hitter said on the list (if that doesn't impose to much instability)

Yep, jesse showed me that when he tried the livecd in vmware fusion -- but it didn't do that in Parallels :-/ (which is why I never even try to fix it!). I guess one reason could be that I didn't use a harddrive in my parallels image -- it's possible that the boot process skip a few things if it detects no harddrive. Likely the files to change are located on the iso9660 part of the livecd. If someone want to delve a bit more into how the ubuntu livecd handle the boot sequence...

Yes, I saw that happen on my machine as well when I tested it in VMWare Fusion.

before the grey background with the étoilé logo and the boot messages appears several Linux/ubuntu related screens are visible, including a boot menu with the ubuntu logo. While I do not know if this is intended to show the heritage of the LiveCD it doesn't look good and could possibly be misleading to the user (especially the menu saying "Start or install Étoilé" (I did not find a way to install it).
